This is an excellent beer store with a large selection of craft and imp rot beers as well as fine wines from around the world. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and they even have a "Beer of the Month Club" where you buy 12 of the 13 beers on the list for the month and after completing 10 lists they will put your name on the wall of the store. I love going here and am already a regular customer, I just wish they were still able to offer growlers. If the beer laws in Florida improve I’m sure Tipple’s will be the first place to have growlers again.

Good clean store with plenty of variety--probably the best in the Gainesville/Ocala area. Will definitely be back to try new arrivals.

A really nicely kept store run by two guys who are friendly and try to keep things neat. Helpful with suggestions, lots of interesting Euro beers, and other Gainesville oddities like Mead and Ice Cider. Not enough space dedicated to large format American micros. Still a really good store and considering the part of town they’re in the markup compared to Gator Bev is minuscule.
Keeps improving and improving, is the hands down best store in North Florida, way better than Liquor Loft (?) in Tally, arguably close to Knightly at this point.

One of only two places in Gainesville with an excellent selection of beer. Have landed stuff from Cantillon and plenty of other fun things like Fantome, Prestige de Nuits, Pannepot, Cantillon, Black Damnations, Cigar City and Swamp Head. Landed some Black Note here. Great spot. They allow inclusion of any single in a mix-six, which is nice. They have some rotating taps there in the store, and a good selection of wine. And they’re back to doing growlers in the shop. Tastings of rare stuff like LP Gueuze, Hommage, other Cantillon and barrel aged stuff. Great staff that is friendly and knowledgable. The place to be in Gainesville for beers.

Great staff. Great selection. Good prices. Go if you want to learn about good beer. Go if you know what you like but want to try a something new. Go if you are looking for a specific brew and they will probably be able to get it for you. Offer beer tastings as well that are top notch. Had growlers for awhile but had to stop that service due to Florida laws.

I like Tipple’s quite a lot. They have a great collection of bottles, and some really obscure seasonals. Also, they have a bounty of lovely Florida beers (Swamphead and Cigar City, which, if you’re not drinking, you’re missing out). They know their stuff well, they have enough taps to keep keep you hanging out for a while, and they have chocolate, wine, and excellent glassware to boot (I scored a Hitachino Nest glass!). If you’re in Gainesville, and don’t mind driving a few miles outside of town, check this place out. You’ll find something you like.

Stopped in for the first time after the Swamp Head BA 10-10-10 and BA Roosevelt release. Nice looking well-lit place. Friendly staff, some knowledgeable employees for sure. Everyone says this is the best selection in Gainesville, and I believe it. Lots of Shelton stuff and just about anything else good you would want to find in town. Average prices. If you’re in Gainesville, this is probably where you want to stop.

Tipple’s is a relatively small store, but has plenty of high-end beers to satisfy the most discerning customers. Since my first visit a few weeks ago they have already added many 95+ percentile beers including Cigar City and Southern Tier. The service is fantastic, answering all the questions you have and looking up beer descriptions/ratings online at the desk. Prices are competitive with other beer stores in Gainesville like Ward’s and Gator Beverage, and Tipple’s has the best prices on single beers to create your own 6-pack.

They have two taps if you want to have a drink at the store. Lots of good selections for the area, competitive prices, and you can mix and match too.

Small bottle shop in SW Gainesville near the suburbs. Very clean and well organized. Service is good; staff is knowledgeable. Selection is very good for Gainesville: lots of Florida beer (Cigar City, Saint Somewhere, Swamp Head, etc) as well as other stuff available in the region. Nice selection of Belgians, including some lambic. Prices are comparable to Gator beverage, maybe a bit higher. They also sell wine and cigars.
